Harness Racing Industry Assotiation , P.E.I. 2014 inc. and Red Shores, goes on Tuesday, August 26, with eight drivers from around Canada representing their respective regions. A new twist has been added to this years NDC format. Rather than the usual format for assigning drivers, Standardbred Canada will conduct a 'draft' for the eight races, similar to a hockey pool style draft. This provides the drivers direct involvement in determining the horses they will drive when they draft their horses. Red Shores' will play host to Premiers from around Canada for the night of power packed action which includes the Founders Cup Invitational for a purse of $25, 000 and the $ 5,000 Builders Cup in recognition of Doug Hill of Charlottetown and Eric Johnston of Summerside.

The rookie of the field has only been driving since 2007 and rapidly has made his mark at his home track of Truro, winning the driving title in 2011, 2012, 2013 and is well on his way to winning it again this year.

The winner of the Atlantic Regional Driving Championship and the final participant in the 2014 NDC, is the hometown hero, the king of the Maritimes, Marc Campbell.

He started driving in 2004 and is in his 10th season as a driver. He has more than 1240 wins and over $ 2.6 million in lifetime earnings.

"King Campbell" sure will be at home on Tuesday, his home track is sure to be packed with family and friends, and if that isn't enough. He holds the record for most wins in a single season in Charlottetown, during the 2012 season he notched 130 of them. From a little boy growing up in Orwell, to a young man representing his region on the National stage, Campbell said he wants nothing more than to represent his country at the 2015 World Driving Championships. by Bo Ford, for Red Shores
